Raleigh Furniture Disposal – Get Rid of the Old Stuff

When was the last time you went shopping for furniture? Most of us have bedroom sets or living room sets we’ve been using for years. Are those sofas beginning to sag? Is your dresser worn out? If you’re looking for a good bargain for furniture you might want to give the Riverview Galleries a shot. They are an independently owned store that has been in operation since 1972. That makes them a true Raleigh fixture.

Riverview Galleries has plenty to boast about (as they should!). Here’s how they described themselves on their expansive website: “Operating a retail furniture store in the North Carolina Triangle of Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill gives us convenient access to the finest selection in the country, and we are able to buy direct from the manufacturers to offer great savings. While we work with hundreds of leading name brand furniture manufacturers, we tend to specialize in those high quality lines that offer great flexibility and custom options. If you are looking for custom upholstery or custom casegoods, we offer a wide range of special order capabilities for you to choose from and can offer an incredible array of fabrics, finishes, styles and price points to meet your individual needs. Our professional staff can help you design your interior, decorate your room, get decorating ideas, plan your space, coordinate colors and styles and create the perfect room.”

Don’t think that just because they’ve been around since the 70s that Riverview Galleries isn’t up to speed in this internet age. In fact, a lot of their customers have made the transition from visiting the traditional showroom to shopping exclusively online. If you like seeing the furniture you’re interested in then head over their showroom, give it a test run and then go back to order online. You might find that the online prices are a better bargain.

The thing you’ll have to consider is what to do with the old furniture? If delivery men brought that furniture into your home then that same kind of muscle is going to be needed to get rid of it and you can find that muscle with Junk King.

Raleigh Junk Recycling

What exactly does it take for a city to be green? Actually, it’s just what you would expect. Included on the checklist of eco-friendly services that get high marks on the green scorecard are things like solar panel installation, bicycle repair, chemical-free house cleaning, organic catering, electronics recycling, chemical-free pest control, chemical-free carpet cleaning, sustainable interior design, green architects and home energy audits. Naturally, a curbside recycling program is also a big plus. Fortunately for residents of Raleigh, the city scores high marks on all counts.

In terms of the curbside recycling, the city of Raleigh has some very specific guidelines: “For residents using the 18-gallon recycling bin, prepared cardboard can be placed in the bin, or stacked alongside the bin. For residents using the 95- or 65-gallon roll carts, all flattened cardboard must fit inside the cart. Residents with a lot of cardboard, and do not want to reduce it to suitable pieces can remove packing materials, flatten it and take it to one of the City’s drop off recycling centers. The recycling bin or carts has been provided by the City of Raleigh for recycling purposes only. The recycling cart has an RFID code embedded inside it that is geo-coded to that particular address. If you move, please leave the recycling container for the next resident to use. Leaving it in the garage, backyard, or at the side door next to the garbage cart works best.”

Those drop off centers were put in place for you to get rid of your bulky items that won’t fit in the regular curbside bins. After a move into a new house, you might have stacks of cardboard that will overflow one of those bins. Big pieces of furniture, mattresses and kitchen appliances are all items that can be recycled but that doesn’t mean you’ll be able to get them to the recycling center. If you’ve got the big truck and some guys to help you lift the heavy stuff then you’re halfway there. The other thing you’ll need is the time which will be based on their schedule. A better option might just be with Junk King Raleigh.

Junk King Raleigh is part of a national franchise of professional junk haulers that takes going green to a whole new level. You might not think that what you have to throw out is recyclable. Let Junk King Raleigh’s professional team worry about that. If it can be repurposed and reused they’ll find a way to make it happen. In fact, Junk King is proud of the fact that they divert a large percentage of all the items they collect away from a landfill, preventing dangerous chemicals from seeping into valuable Raleigh soil.
